A tiny risk of being bitten by a deadly snake but the food along the way is super
Often one gets an unexplained urge to trot through the Australian bush. The downside is snakes, spiders, ticks, leeches, wild animals, tents, bully beef, brackish water and a shovel to dig your own toilet. Luckily you can walk the wide brown land’s most spectacular World Heritage Area and stay in excellent accommodation and have an inspired, three-course dinner with equally inspired Tasmanian wine in a place with inside toilets. Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain Huts will only take $3100 each from you and your loved ones for the 65km, six-day walk. There is a chance you will see a 1.8-metre tiger snake. Have not much fear, they generally don’t like people but if they take a liking to you, their venom is neurotoxic, causing some central nervous system problems, muscle damage and kidney failure.
